PDF File Size: 2.24 MB | Download   
The current study on health related quality of life of women suffering from Pelvic Organ Prolapse before and 9 to 11 months after surgical intervention was conducted at two points in time. In 2011, a Baseline study was conducted which analysed information from 357 women from 11 districts1 with stage III, IV and few stage II cases referred by Reproductive Health (RH) camps organized by Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Nepal and Health and Environmental Services Solukhumbu (HHESS). They had Pelvic organ surgery (POP) in three hospitals. Out of the 15 gynaecologists who performed POP surgeries in three hospitals, 4 doctors conducted 7 surgeries or more a day while the rest performed 5 surgeries or less a day. The women who had POP surgery were administered a quantitative questionnaire which sought information on socio-demographic characteristics, pregnancy and fertility, health seeking behaviour, possible causes of POP, Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory (PFDI-20) and Pelvic Floor Impact Questionnaire (PFIQ-7) quality of life measuring scaling questionnaires and pre-operative assessment about the condition of POP. Furthermore, 31 case studies of women were prepared. After about 9 months of Baseline study, in 2012 Endline study was conducted through follow-up camps set up to examine the same clients in 10 districts except Kalikot. The total clients followed-up were 322.
